Parenting is complicated. Our hope is to have happy, healthy, successful children – but how do we get there? Whose help do we need? Where do we start? It takes a village to raise a child. Join us for a day when we learn how we are and how we can be that village.
"We are the Village: A Conference and Expo" that includes:
• Sessions for parents and families that range from addressing challenging behavior to dealing with picky eaters, from supporting children in sports to The Sex Talk – and everything in between.
• Community Expo with local resources for families
• Free child care and activities for children ages birth through fifth grade
• Opportunities to connect with affinity groups - folks facing similar challenges, joys, and experiences.
Check back often for updates on session topics and expo participants. If you or your agency is interested in participating in the resource expo and/or breakout sessions, please contact Megan at [email protected]
